British Airways Promotes COVID19 Rapid Test Kits from Qured

(05 Mar 2021)
British Airways customers can now order discounted
global antigen tests from Qured, a government-approved COVID19
testing provider.

The rapid test kits, which cost £33 and can be
ordered to any UK address, are portable so customers can take the
kits with them abroad, in preparation for their return journey to
the UK.

The simple test is remotely administered by a
professional health advisor over a scheduled video call. The
health advisor will guide the customer through taking a nose and
throat swab and processing the sample.

Verified results are
available after 20 minutes, and the customer can download a ‘fit
to fly’ certificate if the test is negative.


Qured’s CEO Alex Templeton, said, “Our accessible
rapid testing service takes the hassle out of finding a test
abroad. As a trusted healthcare provider we look forward to
delivering an exceptional patient experience to British Airways’
customers and to working with them on a safe return to travel.”

To offer customers further reassurance before
travel, the airline recently began trialling a new travel health
app, VeriFLY. The digital health travel passport, which can be
downloaded to a mobile device, is designed to check customers meet
the entry requirements of their destination by providing digital
health document verification and confirming eligibility, before
they depart for the airport.

Test results from Qured and other test providers
can be safely and securely uploaded to the app. British Airways is
in talks with other test providers to seek opportunities to have
test results automatically sent to the VeriFLY app, to make the
process even easier.

The airline continues to work on the development
of the
IATA Travel Pass and is exploring all digital travel
verification solutions to support its customers when travel
re-starts.

British Airways’ CEO Sean Doyle, said, “As we look
forward and prepare for a safe return to travel, we remain focused
on finding and offering the most convenient and affordable testing
options for our customers. Our teams were pleased to discover Qured, an
unique new option which removes uncertainty and unnecessary
expense for customers who may be concerned about sourcing a
pre-departure test while away from home.”

other testing options and discounts available, customers should
